    Ok well while setting the pinion preload on my 14 bolt with a huge breaker bar and 6 foot pipe my vice decided it didn't want to live any longer and actually snapped in half. Well, when that happend I fell on the breaker bar and what do you know, I over crushed the crush sleeve /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    So, I am really pissed off at the moment and I need my truck running in 1 day... So what the hell do I do? Can I find a crush sleeve local? Would a driveshaft shop have them? Or do I have to order it? Drivetrain Direct can get it to me in 1 day but that 1 day wont' be till Tuesday...

    Well I can say that I've done stuff like that and put myself in a bind like that a few times. I would get on the phone bright and early to the local parts store and see what they've got. NAPA has bailed me out a few times with weird stuff and you never know what the local dealer has on the shelves getting dusty.

    I hope it works out for you
